Linking with our theme of migration, this year’s Children’s Opera Project is based on the story of Hansel and Gretel and the universal themes of greed, self-reliance and overcoming fear. When a famine settles over the land, a group of children is left in the woods to fend for themselves. Using their wits to survive, they embark on a journey into the unknown where they come across an unusual house, with a very strange inhabitant…

The RNCM Children’s Opera project brings together 150 children from Manchester primary schools to create and perform a new opera, guided by a professional composer and supported by RNCM musicians.
